Phoenix (7-4) took a 104-90 lead into the final quarter after Oubre hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third and kept a comfortable lead throughout the fourth.

Dario Saric added 23 points after shooting 9 of 12 from the field, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range.

Atlanta (4-7) was led by Jabari Parker, who scored 24 points. Trae Young had 21 points and 13 assists two nights after a 42-point, 11-assist performance in a win over Denver.

Booker scored 19 points in the first half as the Suns built a 67-61 halftime lead. Young had 17 points and six assists for the Hawks.
